All programs created in this unique partnership between educators and artists are designed to: tie directly to core curriculum and Virginia's Standards of Learning; use the arts as an innovative teaching tool; demonstrate the specified art form in a performance setting; cultivate understanding and interest in the art form; include creative interaction between the artist and the audience; and provide age-appropriate experiences.

Graves' second appointment, by the Norfolk City Council, is to the Norfolk Community Services Board.The appointment is for a two-year term ending in 2008. The organization provides treatment and rehabilitation services in the areas of mental health, mental retardation and substance abuse to more than 8,800 city residents.
